Photo Comment

The Mustang looks so modern after all these years. This beauty was delivered to the Netherlands East Indies air force at the end of World War II. It was used in the Dutch 'policing actions', then handed over to the Indonesians. In 1958 it was involved in operations against CIA-backed forces in the Moluccas.
